Connecting children and families through play, expression and creativity

We are able to support families accessing NDIS plans (plan and self-managed).

We are The Play Therapy Studio, a Child and Family Counselling Service offering creative and expressive counselling approaches for children, across their development. Our goal is to support families to connect meaningfully. 

We offer a safe and therapeutic space where children and caregivers can explore and express themselves through play-based and expressive therapies, in a way that is real, effective and authentic.

We engage children and caregivers in evidence-based counselling approaches, that aim to strengthen their emotional well-being, resilience, and mental health, and offer the potential for healing and growth in and out of their sessions.

Through using play and creative expression as the primary means of communication during therapy sessions, caregivers and children can work on their unique needs and challenges in a way that can work for them..

We work with children and caregivers to:
